When it comes to a judgment against you for a back debt in general, there is very little that cannot be liened or attached. When the debt is back child support, they are even more strenuous about collecting.

Without knowing your state, I'd still suspect that the answer is yes, they can.

However, as always, you should consult with an attorney in your area, so that you may get advice specifically tailored to your situation and the state you are in.
